Wow, after reading your post, I can totally relate to you as well.  My situation is very similar but I’m older.  I’m 34 about to turn 35 this December, day after Christmas.  I already went through my 30th birthday almost 5 years ago determined to hopefully meet the special somone and have children before I’m 35.  Well, good thing is that I met my special somone already, my dear husband and we just got married this past August after living with each other for almost 4 years.  I still get people telling me, oh you just got married enjoy you married life for at least a year before thinking about starting a family.  I’m like we already lived with each other.  And unfortunately my husband is now unemployed and I’m the only one working.  However I do wonder if we wait any longer, will I run into IF problems?  I don’t know and it doesn’t help that I do look younger for my age so people forget I’m on a very short timeline for child bearing years.  Oh and my husband is in no rush as well, he feels women can have children well over 40 plus.   I don’t know at times, this is driving me crazy, I’ll just wait and see, hopefully if he gain employment soon that would make him more on abroad to TTC.

@bellarain: You and I are like twins! Sort of. Well, going through similar experiences, at least. I’m going to be 36 in December, and C and I got married on August 7 (although in 2010). We both also look younger than we are. Basically, I could have written your post.

I have no idea what to do… I’m an RN and I used to work in maternity. I know the very real consequences of waiting too long, but tell that to C! He is 100% convinced we’ll get pregnant right away and have a full-term pregnancy that results in a perfectly happy baby. The very first time. Without miscarriages. 🙁

It only gets worse!  If anyone figures out you’re actually trying to conceive, they’ll hit you with loads of annoying advice…Gems such as “Just relax and it will happen…”  I want to drop-kick anyone who says that!  And “When God wants you to have a baby, it’ll happen when the time is right…”  Really?  Well I’ve been peeing on opks every month and making sure I have millions of swimmers in me when I ovulate, and then I put my ass in the air for 20 minutes!  WHEN IS THE TIME GOING TO BE RIGHT WHEN I’M WORKING SO HARD????

It’s like SandDollar says…When you get married, your vagina and sex life becomes a free for all – lol….Love her;)

You should hang out with my family and friends. I am younger and we just got married less than 2 months ago but my parents/uncle/aunts/….already nag us to have kids.
